If you are after a light set that will keep you safe on your commute to the trails, and you also like playing with funky apps, then the Cateye Sync Core Front and Kinetic Rear light set is perfect for you. With a front light that produces up to 500 lumens and a rear light producing up to 50 lumens, you will be seen from any angle on your way to the trail head. The lights can be connected to Cateye's CatEyeSYNC app to give you real time battery life and the ability to customise the modes of your lights to your liking. Don't need half of the modes? Turn them off. Want to control all your lights with one button? Sync them up! 

Who's this item for: Any riders after a light set that will make sure they are seen on those often treacherous commutes.
